Hi there.

Has anyone got any advice with using natural stone as a finish to my dense block walls?#

I have built my extension but I am scared of rending the whole thing.

I have an abundance of natural stone available and would like to use it in some way to finish the exterior of the house.

Do I simply drill and fix "L" shape wall ties to the dense blocks and build/attach the stones to the outside as you would do with slips?

I have built walls in my garden using this stone and it looks quite good, so i would like to do something like it on the house if I can.

There are some photos attached of my build and the walls in my garden.

Many thanks
